Sacrament of Holy Matrimony


Please contact the Parish Priest to arrange an appointment to discuss your proposed wedding (please give us at least 6 months notice). Couples will normally be required to complete a programme of Marriage Preparation.

“The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptised persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament.”
